    So I just read over the google doc for the patched/unpatched serials. I didn't see any XAW100825 numbers, but on the sidebar it says XAW1008 aren't safe to buy even though I see some unpatched ones listed there and in the comments. Does that mean I'm out of luck or simply that nobody has tested any of the XAW100825 range ones?

    What you got are borderline , it can be patched or unpatched so it needs to be tested by pushing a payload.

    Alright, thank you. Honestly, the extent of my hacking knowledge only involves using Cubic Ninja on the 3DS to install homebrew, so I'll admit this is all new to me. I take it by "pushing a payload" you mean basically testing to see if any of the hacks work? If so which thread around here would I go to for that?

    You would need to see if the switch would accept the cfw payload or not, if it doesn't accept it then it is patched, all unit can enter rcm mode but not all would accept payload via the fusee gelee exploit which got patched for switch that came out around last July. Patched unit can also run CFW but you need to find an unit on a certain firmware as it use a web base exploit as entry point.

    uh congrats? That has nothing to do with my post at all but I'm glad you got an unpatched 1. With a completely different serial number start from mine.

    put it in RCM mode on your computer and test with Biskeydump payload on tegrarcmsmash console... If it returns stack 0000 it's patched if 0700 (I believe) then it's unpatched and you will also see the keys on your console screen...

    Hey guys, I had a couple questions about a switch a person is selling on Ebay and I am a bit confused how the patched/un-patched works when it comes to the console's current firmware.

    before I ask questions, here is the info I know about the system off of ebay:

    Serial: XAW70004xxxxxx (person wouldn't give me full serial number)
    Serial on device matches serial on box: Unknown as it does not come with the box
    Region: The Americas, most likely USA
    Firmware: 7.0.1
    Color option: Neon, I think
    Store: eBay
    Was a bundle (if yes, which): Unknown
    Purchase date: Unknown
    Fusée Gelée works: Unknown

    My question is, since the seller confirm that the switch is on firmware 7.0.1, but the serial XAW70004xxxxxx shows that it is not "patched" with the guide. What does that mean for me, can it be modded? Can the 7.0.1 firmware be downgraded like PlayStation systems do?

    I don't know much about Switch modding, that's why I'm confused what the "patch" has to do with people having to check the serial and not the actual firmware.

    If it is XAW7004xxxxxxx it can be patched or not, if it is XAW70004xxxxxx it is not patched.

    Can you please elaborate? I only see that you removed a "0" for the one and said it could/could not be patched. Since you say this one is not patched as it has 3 "0's" before the 4, what does that mean for me if I choose to buy it?

    It's on Firmware 7.0.1 as per the seller, how do people modd/hack it?

    It is based on serial # ,

    Serials beginning with XAJ7:
    Serials between XAJ70000000000 - XAJ70040000000 are safe to buy
    Serials between XAJ70040000000 - XAJ70050000000 are possibly patched
    Serials above XAJ70050000000 and above definitely patched

    Sorry, I was blind and didn't see that I was asking about a model that had 3 "0's". I understand what you meant.

    But lets say I find a model that is lets say "XAJ70040000000" and it is used with firmware 7.0.1. How do I even mod it as it has firmware that I thought is patched by Nintendo?

    If it is patched you can't mod it now.

    So I read through every but I have one question. If I buy a used switch that is in the green. If that person has played online and received updates is it still good? Is it still "not patched?"
